Hello Woo family! I am in a position to come back into the fold and finally order my long-desired WA5. I've sent Jack my list of questions and I've tried to read through as much of the recent discussion as possible, but can anyone who has ordered one of these recently share any advice you might have? I've owned WA6SE with and without the parts upgrades. I no longer pretend that this is going to be the "last amp I ever own", but I don't think I'll be in the habit of buying and selling a lot of WA5's :-) I would really like to order one and be done with it. In that regard, I think I'll plunge for the parts upgrades but I'm happy to entertain any advice contrary to that direction. I see that Frank is very satisfied with the amp with stock parts. Also, any upgrades not on "the list" that people have done and felt worthwhile?
One question I asked Jack that I'll put here too - has anyone done a volume pot somewhere in between a Blue Velvet and an RK50? Those seem to be the only two I've seen in pictures and there's, umm, a bit of a price difference! I didn't know if something from TKD and the like would be an upgrade without spending $1K on the RK50.
As far as color, it will be silver for me all the way...I've been dreaming of a silver WA5 since 2008.
Thanks for any advice my Woo brothers and sisters can give me!
